    Take a Koto Lesson at a Traditional House in Kyoto

    Take a Koto Lesson at a Traditional House in Kyoto Taking a private koto lesson was the most memorable experience of my whole Japanese vacation. The lesson is in a traditional Japanese house in a neighborhood near Nijo Castle. Harumi was very welcoming and encouraging. Although the lesson lasted only a few hours, I learned a lot. I enjoyed playing koto with Harumi. The highlight was her playing a song at the end of the lesson. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to immerse themselves into Japanese culture.

    Take a Koto Lesson at a Traditional House in Kyoto

    Take a Koto Lesson at a Traditional House in Kyoto What a beautiful experience! Me and my girlfriend went along and had a wonderful time learning the koto. Harumi was really good fun to play with and be taught by. She was patient and funny! She took a real interest in us and making sure that we got the most out of the lesson. The house was beautiful and very traditional and she gave us some background on both the house and the instruments. Although in the suburbs its easy to tie in with other sights and attractions, both the castle and the fire ramen restaurant are in easy walking distance. If I would go back to kyoto I would definitely do this again despite having done it once. It was a real joy to play the instruments with such a helpful patient teacher. THANK YOU HARUMI!!!

    Take a Koto Lesson at a Traditional House in Kyoto

    Take a Koto Lesson at a Traditional House in Kyoto My partner and I arrived at the suburban music studio and were pleasantly suprised to see that it is indeed a charming traditional house! After chatting with Harumi at a low table, we walked through some sliding doors to the Koto room and had an excellent time learning about how the Koto is played and practising a traditional song. Harumi even invited her mother (who is also a Koto teacher) to help with the lesson and we had a great time. At the end, Harumi played a song for us and we were truly awestruck by her mastery of the Koto and the beauty with which she played. 10/10 experience and would recommend this to all travellers interested in Japanese culture and learning something unique.
